Voluntary reporting and transparency
To demonstrate our commitment to increased transparency on social and environmental issues, Schibsted Media Group is a member of several non-governmental organisations. By participating in these voluntary reporting schemes, such as the United Nations Global Compact and the Carbon Disclosure Project, we want to support global initiatives concerning these issues. We are also a member of organisations such as Transparency International and the CSR Media Forum.
United Nations’ Global Compact (UNGP)
Schibsted has been a member of UN’s Global Compact since 2009. This is a strategic initiative for companies that undertake to align their business activities and strategies with ten universally recognised principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environmental protection and the fight against corruption. By signing the compact, Schibsted has undertaken to:
- support the protection of human rights within its sphere of influence
- guarantee international labour standards
- improve environmental protection
- fight corruption and bribery
Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
Schibsted joined the Carbon Disclosure Project in 2010. The Carbon Disclosure Project is an organization working with investors, shareholders and corporations to disclose the greenhouse gas emissions of major corporations.
